Biltmore site sees new plant

A revised proposal for redeveloping the former site of the Biltmore Hats factory, across the street from Guelph Little Theatre, goes to a city council meeting on Monday
No decisions will be made at the 7 p.m. March 17 meeting, but council will hear any delegations on the matter.
The original application, which went to a council meeting in July 2011, sought rezoning to allow a 64-unit townhouse development and a mixed-use commercial structure to be built on the 3.2-acre site at the corner of York Road and Morris Street. City staff later hosted a neighbourhood meeting with the property owner and neighbours to discuss concerns about this project.
Last August, the city received a revised application, which will be discussed at Monday’s council meeting.
The mixed-use commercial building has been dropped in the revised plan. As well, townhouses originally proposed to go along York Road have been replaced with a 42-unit, three-storey apartment building facing York. The new plan also includes 20 two-storey cluster townhouses in three separate buildings along Morris Street, each with driveway access to Morris, says a city staff report.
The Biltmore Hats factory was demolished in May of 2012.
